IMPROVING PERFORMANCE BY APPLYING THE THEORY OF CONSTRAINTS ! Every organization has a constraint to better performance. Do you know yours? Do you have the right tools to eliminate weak links in processes and to actively manage a constraint? The Theory of Constraints provides answers to these questions. First developed by physicist Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt - author of numerous businesses books including the bestseller The Goal, the Theory of Constraints (TOC) is now taught in over 1,400 business schools. At The Claymore Group we’ve taken the jargon and mystery that TOC, like other improvement methodologies seem to accumulate and replaced them with clarity and simplicity. We ﬁrmly believe that the ROI from TOC should begin immediately and that your own people can make it happen. It’s our goal and purpose to provide the needed training. ! ! ! !
